What I think could be interesting is if in a few years they jump ahead and have adult Carl and his sibling as the main characters.
Um....

^"Um" what? Lori is pregnant. If the child survives it will be Carl's sibling.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

^Yeah.

Like say they get to season 7 or 8, they want to freshen things up a bit, jump ahead 10 years or so where Carl is around 30 and his sibling is around 16, and you follow the next generation of survivors. It'd be interesting to see how Carl would try to live up to his father (who would of course be given a suitably heroic death), and explore what it's like having been born in a zombie world having known nothing of what life used to be like.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

One of the things that I really like about this series is that it is sufficiently different from the comic book, while being true to the spirit of the story, that none of us really know what is going to happen next. Shane survived well beyond his comic book story, and Dale died before they even found the prison.

At this point, I have no idea who is going to survive season 3.

At this point we have no idea what the baby will be like when it is born. If everyone is already infected, what effect will that have on a next generation of babies?

I'm not talking biologically, just about what their attitude is. At the moment the adults remember life before zombies, so they're clinging on and hoping to rebuild civilisation one day, but Rick and Lori's child won't remember anything like that. I just think it'd be interesting to see the zombie world from the point of view of someone who sees it as 'normal'.

Just of curiosity, how much time have they covered in the comics?

Still not getting what your hinting at. Maybe you should try this new invention called "sentences" in your next reply.

As of issue #90, it had been approximately sixteen months since the start of the zombie apocalypse (and fifteen months since Rick awoke from his coma). Issue #103 was released last week, but not much time has passed in the intervening thirteen issues - two weeks at most, because a story development requires the passage of one week between issues #100 and #103.

It would really be best if he didn't hint at anything without spoiler codes.

So I guess they probably will have to move the timeline forward in the show if it keeps going for years. As long as Carl is around they'll probably need to move things along faster to reflect the actor's age.

Well, just looking at the actor last week I think we can safely assume that a number of months have passed since the end of season 2. And yes, if the series continues the timeline will have to be different than in the comics where Carl could stay the same age for ten years of publication (assuming he is still around in the comics).

Well, we could tell that from Lori's stomach.

True, but I was just referring to the point made earlier about the actor.

Precisely. Not everyone has either read the comics or looked online and read spoilers. On the other hand, since there have been several differences between the comics and the TV show already, there's no reason to automatically assume that what we know from the comics will be realized on-screen.

Certain things, of course, HAVE to happen as they did in the comics, and there are members of the main cast who have been adamant about that.
